One of these routes is by completion of a Pre-Join degree, whereby students will study a three year degree in professional policing which will equip them to deal with the exciting challenges modern policing has to offer. The BA(Hons) Professional Policing programme has been designed, primarily, to meet the learning needs of students who wish to embark on a career in the police service (police and police staff) but will also be useful for those wishing to work in other related areas, for example; National Crime Agency, probation service, military police, private security industry, civil service, local authority, banking and similar organisations where investigative or practical legal knowledge are required. As well as subject specific skills students will have the opportunity to develop key transferable skills that are highly valued by employers in the graduate job market, including the ability to present and develop a cohesive argument, IT skills, research and problem-solving skills, communication skills and working as part of a team.
